Do Low-Fat Vegans Lose More Weight in Intervention Study?

Where do I come off telling you to stop eating dairy products and get rid of all the oils?Where do I get this information from anyway?

My information and actions are powered by the "preponderance of evidence," as Dr. Pam Popper, owner of the Wellness Forum, frequently states.  I review scientific articles published in academic journals like the one below.  

Today I will discuss an intervention study that randomized overweight postmenopausal women into a low-fat vegan or National Cholesterol Education Program (NCEP) group for 14 weeks.  

Which group lost significantly more weight?  Which group reduced their waist circumference while never restricting their portion sizes?

Did you know plant-based nutrition was evidence-based?  What do you think about this study?
